Make it a Family Event
Art is a great learning experience for all ages! The Shoreline ArtsTrail Open Studios Weekend is an excellent way for children to learn about art up-close and personal. Be sure to have children check out our website before the weekend. They can click on the artists whose work they would like see.
There are multiple studios to visit on the trail during Open Studios, from Branford to Madison. Along the way, you can interact with artists working in all types of interesting media: cut paper, fiber, found objects, glass, jewelry, metal, mixed media, paint, photography, pottery, print making, sculpture, and textiles.
We encourage visitors of all ages!
Support Local Artists
The Shoreline ArtsTrail offers an opportunity to visit the private studios of artists in Branford, Guilford, and Madison, Connecticut. It's a great way to spend the weekend: meet the artists, explore their work spaces, see amazing art. Open Studios Weekend is free and open to the public!
Support Our Sponsors!
The Shoreline ArtsTrail is a collaboration with the Guilford Art Center, and is supported by a number of local Sponsors. These local businesses understand the importance of art and artists to our economy and to our communities. We hope you'll support them in return!
Many of these sponsors offer discounts and promotions during Open Studios Weekend, too!
Many artists are available year-round and welcome visitors. Some studios are open regular hours, others by appointment. Let the artists bring your ideas to life with special commissions. View the Artist List for individual artists' contact information.
